A big thanks to Julie Gerren, another Turpin researcher, who remembered she had an old photo of these ladies. This picture is probably taken between 1926-1935.
|Noted on the back -- left to right: Emma Zetta, Sarah Jane, and Hannah Catherine|
Emma Zetta (#7) 1858-1936
Born in Greene County, Iowa. She married John Abraham Groves.
Sarah Jane (#3) 1848-1935
Born in Owen County, Indiana. She married Warfield Paul.
Hannah Catherine (#9) 1864-April 1939
Born in Greene County, Iowa. She married Douglas Bell.
In trying to calculate when this photo was taken, it helps to know that sisters Margaret Golden (#2) died in 1926, Martha Ellen (#4) died as an infant, Louise Anne (#5) died in 1880, Mary Amanda (#6) in 1912. Nancy Elizabeth (#8) lived until December 1939 but is not in the photo; perhaps too ill to get together with the rest of the sisters.
